FRIDAY, APRIL IT, 1956 BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.) COUK1EK PAGBTHRW Time, Weather Hurting Economy In Some Areas By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Time and the weather are messing up some parts of the economy. Large and economically important sectors are having a cold and wet spring. This delays crop planting, aifects commodity markets, shrinks sales of such warm weather items as autos and spring suits — and benefits fuel dealers. Time—or, rather, man's tinkering with nature—will spread confusion* in some industries next Sunday when many industrial and financial centers go on daylight saving time. Transportation services will have to decide where and how much. to alter schedules between places that do and places that don't change over for the summer. Hour Earlier News services will also be reporting some tilings—like the New York Stock Market-—an hour earlier for papers in standard time cities, and other things—like sport events in old time regions—an hour later for papers going to press on new time. Television and radio programs will be arranged, as best as possible, for a mixed audience. In some states where they have a sort of local option on daylight time — some industrial centers switching over and other parts of the state leaving the clocks alone —things can get really confused. Daylight saving is supposed to let commuters get home, in time to take care of their lawns and gardens. But in many a suburb this doesn't mean much these days. Cold and rain, and occasoin- al show, have made these outdoor chores a mockery. No Laughing Matter For the farmers it's notluug to laugh about. Delayed crop planting can be serious. And if the Weather Bureau's long-range forecast is to be believed more rain and below normal temperatures can be expected at least until mid-May. Commodity markets have been reflecting this possible threat to crops perhaps as much as they have been influenced by the ups and downs of farm legislation in the Congress. Crops can still be planted, but late crops run more risks, either of running into hot weather too early in their growth stage or of suffering from early frosts before matured. Stevenson Thinks Primary Trends are Encouraging MIAMI, Fla. (ffj—Adlai Stevenson says trends in primary voting are encouraging for his own chances agaia-it Estes Kefouver and offer hopes for a Democratic victory in November. The former Illinois governor said last night he based his statement on Returns from the eight primaries held thus far which show a drop in Republican voting as compared to 1952 and a-gain in Democratic voting. And he said Democratic hopes of defeating President Eisenhower had been enhanced by "Vice President Nixon's decision to run again. "I do not greet this news with, any misery whatever," he told a news conference when advised Nixon had decided to seek Republican renomination. Stevenson said there had been a decline of from. 12 to 40 per cent in Republican voting in primaries held thus far. At the same time, he said, the Democratic vote had increased I from 12 to 35 per cent. While he ran about 300,000 votes behind Eisenhower in Pennsylvania, Stevenson said he regarded the significant factors in the election a gain of about 138,000 in Democratic votes over 1952 and a drop of about 268,000" in GOP voting. "An important thing about the Pennsylvania voting is that the Democratic vote was so high considering that there were no state contests to get out the vote and the Republicans had a number of races to attract interest," he said.
